What does microbiome and microflora mean?

You may have seen the words “microbiome” and “microflora” when we mention Floré, but you may be wondering what do those words actually mean? The microbiome is the DNA of all the microflora in your gut. The microflora (sometimes also referred to as microbiota) is all the actual cells of bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc. that live in your gut. Imagine your gut is a garden filled with all of these beneficial vegetables and unfavourable weeds. You want to make sure you’re feeding your good vegetables all the nutrients they need and decreasing the number of weeds in your garden. Custom personalised microbiome supplements provides you with all the soil (natural botanicals like tumeric), seeds (unique live pre and pro bacteria strains), and fertilizer (specialised fibres and oligosaccharides) so your garden can flourish. Floré is designed to support your microbiome and microflora to flourish.

What to Expect When You Take Floré? Why have I received 7 ‘Prime’ capsules?

Like your microbiome everyone is different when they start Floré. Some of our clients reported noticing a difference within as little as 3 weeks. With off-the shelf formula people have reported there can be some general stomach discomfort for the first few days of taking your custom formulation. This is why we supply a 7 day “prime” formula that is a low dose way to ease into your personalised microbiome supplement. Some common reports are (but totally ok) may be slightly loose stool, fatigue, and occasional headaches. If you have any of these issues when taking your formula, remember your Floré supplement is custom and your body maybe adjusting to its addition into your diet. If you have any problems don’t worry, just contact us ( and we can adjust the formula to be just right and comfortable for you. Make sure you provide us with your Kit ID so we can identify you.

What comes with my Floré order?

Floré includes a microbiome collection kit which will be used to collect your stool sample, your online digital gut health analysis report and three months’ worth of your personalised microbiome supplement. All the shipping and delivery is included in the price.

If you subscribe to Floré there is an automatic renewal option, wherein after your first 90 day supply of your personalised microbiome supplements has ended we will send you out a new microbiome collection kit so you can provide us with a new stool sample. Once retested, we will update your online portal with your new report and provide you with a new set of your personalised microbiome supplement allowing you to track your gut health journey and adapt your supplement to your gut needs.

Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17648 does not originate from, nor employ substrates of, animal origin during any part of its manufacture. Statements concerning these substances are available on request.

At what age can L. Reuteri DSM 17648 be used?

L. Reuteri DSM 17648 has a long history of safe use within the food chain. Lactobacillus reuteri is included in the European Food Safety Associations (EFSA) list of microorganisms for Qualified Presumption of Safety (QPS). QPS status implies that the specific strain has not been associated with safety issues. It can therefore be safely consumed by adults and children from 4 years and above.

How is L. Reuteri DSM 17648 different to other strains of L. reuteri and probiotics?

L. Reuteri DSM 17648 exhibits glycoproteins on its surface which recognise and bind to glycoproteins exhibited from specific bacteria that reside in the stomach. These structures are unique to this strain of L. reuteri.

Other strains of L. reuteri and probiotics are usually intended to reach the gut where they can multiply and colonise in order to promote healthy gut bacteria. However, L. Reuteri DSM 17648 is an inactivated (i.e. dead) strain of L. reuteri which is not intended to colonise in the gut. Instead, it is intended to bind to specific gut bacteria, after which, L. Reuteri DSM 17648 and the gut bacteria bound to it will travel through the digestive tract where they will be eliminated through natural bowel movements.

What is L. Reuteri DSM 17648?

L. Reuteri DSM 17648 contains a patented strain of Lactobacillus reuteri (DSM 17648) which, in studies, has shown to specifically binds and co-aggregate to specific bacteria that resides in the stomach. Thanks to this unique mode of action this has allowed L. Reuteri DSM 17648 to give the body a natural way of fighting the bacteria, supporting a healthy stomach environment and good gastric function.
